Downloading Jason's Stop Smoking In 2 hours app quite literally changed Jenny Thomas' life...

Procrastination is one of the biggest obstacles to having the life we want, and for Jenny Thomas the decision to finally listen to Jason Vale’s Stop Smoking in 2 Hours app was the catalyst for change. Having downloaded the app six months previously, Jenny was desperate to quit the habit and in February 2014 finally committed a mere 120 minutes to breaking her addiction for good.

“Jason’s app was the catalyst for change and I would never have gone to Juicy Oasis without it”

“It only took a couple of hours and, like so many things, once I’d done it I couldn’t believe how easy it was,” says Jenny. “That was it, I had jumped on my path to freedom. I didn’t realise at the time just how much would change, following that day.”

Freed from addiction, a few weeks later Jenny experienced a setback when she tore her calf muscle playing netball.

“It might seem hard to believe but this was catastrophic to me. I have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), so eating healthily and exercising play a massive part in managing the condition. Unable to exercise, I gained nearly a stone in weight.

Best foot forward

“A friend suggested a visit to Juicy Oasis and I decided to book a stay. The first few days, my body and mind went into a state of shock. Apart from netball, I hadn’t done any real exercise in years and my lungs were those of a 30-40-a-day smoker, so I found the exercise pretty tough but also really good fun and it helped me work out some of my frustrations. I noticed the difference that the pure nutritious goodness of juice had on my body too.” Along with the physical effects of the Juicy Oasis programme, Jenny felt a shift in mindset during her retreat.

“I’m not sure if it was one moment or lots of things coming together but I had the realisation that my life was not what I wanted it to be and I was really unhappy,” continues Jenny. “It was hard as I’d had a successful marketing career over 20 years and held a senior position in a global company. I knew I needed to get off the treadmill, take back control of my life and start living the life that I wanted.

“If you’ve never experienced a week-long juicing detox it might sound strange, but I hit a ‘juicy high’. I have honestly never felt so energised, alive, positive and unstoppable. After one amazing walk, I started thinking about what I could do to build the life I wanted, and it was definitely one with juice in it! I started to focus on what makes me happy – work that is rewarding and fulfilling; listening, understanding and helping people to make their dreams become reality.”

It took a while to make the transition but Juicy Oasis was the best thing I could ever have done for my body and mind – it changed everything for me.”

Having launched Revitalise Coaching, Jenny is about to celebrate her first year as a confidence and career coach. “I took out a year to train and qualified as a NLP practitioner and personal-performance coach. Jason’s app was the catalyst for change and I would never have gone to Juicy Oasis without it. Earlier this year I walked the Jurassic Coast for Macmillan Cancer Support and I’m going to walk up Mount Snowdon in a few weeks. I’m finally living the life I want.”
